Place your silk vertically – you might hang it on a doorknob – and run the steamer over it until the creases disappear. That’s it! You could also consider using a standing garment steamer as this option has more fabric settings to give easy, wrinkle-free results – even for your tricky-to-iron delicate materials. Once your silk is completely cool from the steaming or ironing, you can then wear it or put it away.
Now that you know the ins and outs of washing and ironing silk, you can enjoy fresh, crisp silk garments every time. It’s goodbye to wrinkled, burnt silk and hello to silk clothing that looks as good as new.
